You said"I once had to call the day care to make sure I dropped off my kids because I truly could not remember if I had left home without them or they were still in the car." The point is that you did remember right away and you did call the daycare to check.you cought your possiable mistake early.This lady forgot her kid altogether for 9 hours .How do you do that? How do you wake up,dress yourself and get ready for work,then dress up your baby and get him ready for daycare put him in his carseat, start driving,and then forget him? I know when I am with someone ,and I know when I"m alone? I would have been talking to him and singing to him all the way to the daycare.Also hearing his breathing and sighs.I don't know.It's all a very tragic event.R.I.P. to the baby.And God Bless his family.

I sympathize with the family and this is a difficult situation - the family will have to live with the mother's lack of responsibility the rest of their lives...but "forgetting" and "unintentional" are not legitimate excuses.....If i were to be pulled over for speeding, i can claim it wasnt intentional, i didnt see the speed limit sign, i didnt realize i was going that fast, etc....doesnt matter - still guilty of speeding.....

Mrs Brol was not acting responsibly - if she was preocupied to the point where she "forgot" to drop off her son at daycare, then there are some serious issues that need to be addressed. I work full time, have 3 children and there is not one minute that i dont know where my kids are. If i am not responsible enough to be aware of that - then who is?

[Really? Do you know her? Do you know what was going on in her mind, in her life? Maybe someone should remind all those so quick to judge that "People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones". It is true that most of us would not make a mistake so big, ending in a life changing, horrible loss, but I think not one of us can say for sure that at some point in your life, past, present or future, you have not made a mistake that could have changed or ruined your or someone elses life. Can you honestly say you have never been behind the wheel of a car after a few drinks???? Maybe you just got "lucky". Parents make truly honest mistakes with their children everyday. Is it right? Of course not, but it happens, and sadly, we are all human and capable of making the most erroneos mistakes everyday, every second of every day. I know from experience that my children could sleep quietly in the car for hours. It is not inconceivable that this could be a truly horric accident. It is not for you or I to judge. You know nothing but what the media has reported and you should leave the condemnation to GOD. Do you honestly believe she will not live for the rest of her life in the hell her own mind will create for the loss of a child she loved dearly?

I can't understand how a mother has just put her child in car seat so she knows that now she must drive to daycare to drop off child so instead she drives to work and says she forgot to drop of her child. Now there seems to be a question of quilty or not by judge. What's to think about. The woman was guilty and should be punished like all the others have or is she special.

My God! This is sooo sad but what is even more sad is the lack of compassion. In this world today we have so much on our minds and hearts. You have the pressures of daily task such as your husband, kids, bills, job, and etc. Lets not talk bout the things we cant even control. It is very possible for an infant or even a toddler to be sleep on the drive to work. Anyone with or without kids know they do fall asleep in the car quickly. Some of you do not have compassion until it happens to you. Just pray for the family.

I think of my kids 24/7. I even think of my pets on hot days. I make sure the fans are on for the pets. I leave lots of water for them.
I can't believe on her lunch she didn't think, Oh I forget to take the baby to daycare??? She drove passed the daycare on her way to work, it was something she did everyday. Something is wrong with this, very wrong.

For everyone with a little compassion, think what it must be like to have two young children at home. Every mother of more than one child knows that life is hectic. Nerves are stretched thin and descent sleep is non-existent.(BTW, where was the 2 year old and where was the father in all this?)
Drawing from personal experence, I once had to call the day care to make sure I dropped off my kids because I truly could not remember if I had left home without them or they were still in the car. That is what sleep deprivation can do to you, among many other things.
This woman will suffer for the rest of her life. She will be stared at when she goes out in public. Her name will be everywhere and on everyone's lips. Historically, marriages seldom survive accidents such as this and her family will be further torn apart.
All we can really do is to pray for her and her family. May they find peace.
Why I bet you and her have MOMNESIA the new diagnosis for mothers who FORGET their babies/kids...... how did all of us mothers who are in our 50's ever make it this far..... we have to many EXCUSES AND DIAGNOSIS for plain old...... sorry we have a society that NEVER TAKES RESPONSIBLITY FOR THEIR ACTIONS IT IS ALWAYS SOMEONE ELSES FAULT...... gee I am sorry she has to remember this the rest of her life..... at least she has a life to live.... yes accidents do happen but that was no accident.......

I am ashamed that we live in a society where we RUSH to judge. Let me start by saying God Bless that poor child and yes the mother and entire family to.
Let see who can we blame now ????????
How about NYS yes..... New York State.
Some of these poor families that work 10-12 hour days, 6-7days a week. Work more than full time, take care of a family, house etc. and have to try to make ends meet at the end of the week, and if were lucky have money to buy food, and put gas in our cars to do it all over again, and HOPE your children don't get sick or hurt 'cause they proberly dont have health insurance.
With all the stress of daily life just to exsist
NOT LIVE but just to exsist here on earth.
What is this world comming to..........
The rich get richer and the poor get poorer and the middleclass, well we get poorer to..
To get children up, dressed,fedand everything they need for the day then stop for gas and maybe get lucky to have enough money for a cup of coffee. That poor mother was proberly streched beyond belief, and god forbid your late for work then you have to deal with your employer.
Well I hope eveyone who wrote being a complete a-hole, your lucky to have a kind,careing,compasinate employer..
I just wish everyone was as well off as your are, the world would be a better place.
God Bless That Family, may God Be With You ALL !!!!

Someone who leaves a child in a car has serious mental issues.You have to be a pretty self absorbed,self important,selfish piece of crap to forget your own child.The whole thing should be investigated.As far as I am concerned you would have to do that intentionally.

How do you not think about your BABY once during the day? How he was when you dropped off to daycare, wondering if he ate or slept. I cannot imagine your baby not crossing your mind at all during the day!
